Over the winter break, I've been thinking a lot about self care. It is often something I lack. Yes, I get my regular manicures and even the occasional massage. But when it comes down to the little things, like time management, I often fail myself. Looking back, I've been feeling way too much guilt over the past few semesters for days when I was unable to do anything, including shower. It isn't humanly possible to uphold the expectations I set for myself. The best form of self care I learned this year was saying no and giving myself a day off. As they say, you can't pour from an empty cup.
